Today’s Hero wod is in honor of Chief Petty Officer Charles “Chuck” Humphrey Keating IV – known to friends and family as “C4” – was a US Navy Seal. who was killed in action on May 3, 2016, while attempting to rescue US Military advisers that were pinned down by ISIS fighters in the Iraqi town of Telskof.
The name of the workout comes from an inside joke about Chuck.
As his fellow soldier explained it “We call it Chuck heavy, cause Charlie’s beer of choice was Budweiser. He didn’t drink Bud Light, he drank Bud Heavy and heavy just sums up the whole emotional feeling for all of us.”
